Attached 2 x brand new Western Digital 8TB USB 3.0 drives awhile back and
ran some file copy tests and was getting these warnings-- is there any way
to avoid these warnings?  I did confirm with parted that the partition was
aligned but this appears to be something related to the firmware on the
device according to [1] and [2]?

[1] https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9573203/
[2] https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9597797/

Part of the patch in [2] - if the firmware is buggy is there a patch or
workaround for these drives (when used in the USB enclosures) to avoid this
issue?

+	default:
+		/*
+		 * In case of bogus fw or device, we could end up having
+		 * an unaligned partial completion. Check this here and
force
+		 * alignment.
+		 */
+		resid = scsi_get_resid(SCpnt);
+		if (resid & (sector_size - 1)) {
+			sd_printk(KERN_INFO, sdkp,
+				"Unaligned partial completion (resid=%u,
sector_sz=%u)\n",
+				resid, sector_size);
+			resid = min(scsi_bufflen(SCpnt),
+				    round_up(resid, sector_size));
+			scsi_set_resid(SCpnt, resid);
+		}
